MSc Human Resource Management
Ask any organisation to identify the key to their success and they'll say "our people". But for those people to perform at their best, they need to work in an atmosphere in which they feel valued and rewarded. The HR professional is one of the keys to delivering just that.
This programme will enable managers, whatever their present level of experience, to develop the strategic, functional and personal skills they need to meet the increasingly demanding roles of HR.
The programme is structured around the key roles of the HR professional:
- Strategic partner: working to align human resources with business strategy.
- Change agent: managing change processes to increase the effectiveness of the organisation.
- Administrative expert: working to improve organisational processes and deliver basic human resource services.
- Employee champion: listening and responding to employee needs.
The programme also addresses the increasingly important interfaces between HR and other key business functions, including marketing and communications, information and communications technologies and knowledge management. Successfully manage across these interfaces and you can meet the key strategic aims of organisations.
To achieve the MSc, you will need to obtain passes in five core and four elective courses.
